Really. I'm so damn sick of looking at this stupid thing I want to find my husband's shotgun, buy some shells, and go to town on it.

It's my entry for the Wedding Competition at OSSAS this year. If I never see another sea creature again it will be too soon.

I'm just sayin'. icon_mad.gificon_mad.gif

Why don't you try shooting it after you win? icon_biggrin.gificon_biggrin.gificon_biggrin.gificon_biggrin.gificon_biggrin.gif

And make a video for youtube icon_razz.gif

I'm sure the video on youtube will be the judges huddled together, laughing their butts off.

Stupid fish cake. Have I mentioned that I hate sea anenomes?

Oh, yeah....very grumpy today.

I heard of a lady who dumped her cake in the trash on her way out of OSSAS one year. That is starting to sound soooooo tempting.

Maybe I'll just box it up and refuse to look at it for a week.

just douse it gas and set it a blaze after the show. Say it's theater and edgy.

Just kidding. Take a deep breath and step away from the cake and the shot gun.

Now THAT sounds FUN! I knew there was a reason I liked you. icon_lol.gif

I haven't posted a pic yet. I have to make a topper for the stupid looking thing and since I can't fit it assembled in my DH's truck, I still have a border to pipe on there when I arrive. So, the pic will have to wait until then. Hopefully I can transport the dumb thing without it breaking and further pissing me off.

I honestly don't know how Lori and Cheri and Kim and all those people work on these blasted things all year long. I honestly can't stand the sight of the idiotic thing.

Oh, and my tablecloth hasn't arrived yet. So I'm sweating my table decorations, too. Yippee! thumbs_up.gif

Sorry so grumpy. Thanks for letting me vent. Maybe now I'll get through the next month without shooting it.

*ahem* Now Dear Sweet Karateka, you just back away from those horrid thoughts and just focus focus focus. You can do this! I've seen your work up close and personal and know you can.

(evil voice returns) just drop kick the cake and roundhouse it's sugary butt as soon as the show is over

I don't have one of it completed. 'Cuz it's not yet. I suppose I could post one of it in its current state. I'll have to get back to you on that.

I put it in another room while I work on my cake due this weekend so I don't have to see it. Oh, yeah, doofus that I am have accepted several orders due this month while this stupid show cake is hanging over my stupid head. But it is helping to not have to see it all day today and tomorrow while I work on this other project.

I believe I have several screws loose.

Duff & Co took some of their old display cakes to a range and shot them up on one of the episodes of Ace of Cakes. Looked like a lot of fun.

Sending calm feeling your way. icon_biggrin.gif

Here is a picture. I haven't got the tablescape down yet, and the border around the 2nd tier is not there since I have to transport in pieces, but this will give you an idea what it is going to look like.
